Hand-Penned Petals, Celebrating You, Mother's Day Card, Stampin' Up!

I still wanted to play with my "Hand-Penned Petals" set, and no, not because it was still sitting out. Though it was!  I had seen another card that looked like fun. Mostly because it used a nice piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP).  You can see the original card here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Mint Macaron card stock.  I cut two 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock, one for the front and one for the inside.  I taped them both in their respective places.

Then I took a piece of DSP from the 6" x 6" "Subtles" stack. I cut it at 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".  Then I cut a piece of Basic White card stock at 4" x 2-7/8".  It really should have been cut at 3-7/8".  Then the Basic White layer would show better. But it's still okay this way.

I stamped the flower from the "Hand-Penned Petals" set and die cut them with the matching die.  Then I colored them using my Blends pens. I didn't have the Fresh Freesia Blends pen so I used my Blender pen and the Fresh Freesia ink pad.  I colored lightly on the tips.  Then I colored the flowers with the Light Highland Heather pen and then colored closer to the center with the dark Highland Heather pen.  I used Daffodil Delight light in the center of the one flower.  The leaves and stems were colored in using both light and dark Mint Macaroon pens. I added Dimensionals on the backside. 

I took my small Basic White piece and I set it up in my Stamparatus and then set the flowers on top to see where the wording would go. The words are from the "Celebrating You" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. 

I die cut the scalloped edging using the die in the same "Hand-Penned Petals" bundle, using Mint Macaron card stock. I cut that card stock at 1" wide x 5-1/2" long. After I die cut it, I glued the strip to the back of the Basic White piece and then trimmed the edges. I chose glue so I could move it and get it on the Basic White piece evenly.  Once that was done I taped the piece to the front of the card.

The flower was then set in place and a white Baker's Twine bow was added with a dot of glue and the card was done.

This was a very fun and quick card to make and you get to use up a big piece of DSP!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Mother's Day card,
